're tightening the penalties, and giving 25 years in prison and making it harsh for anyone who breaks this law. a number of republicans objected to it because they object to any sort of gun control and they don't believe this is a problem. this moves this particular pill to the full senate for cars. what is going to happen next is difficult, that is the negotiations that fall over a bipartisan effort to have background checks. this was led by senator schumer. at one point it looked like he would get the support of republican senator coburn. those fell apart. what schumer is doing he's introducing his original bill, this is a vehicle in case they're able to restart the negotiations over the background check and agree on language that will provide a vehicle on the senate floor. all four measures are expected to pass if only because democrats have a majority on the committee. and then the big key will be what happens once these get to the senate floor? will they all be tied into one bill? will they be voted separately which might increase chances of smaller pieces passing but may decrease on some
restrictive law in all of america. if they can just get rid of reading, they'll have the perfect state at least women still have the right to leave arkansas. >> barack obama takes a group of republican senators out for a fancy dinner. sean hannity demands to know why this president so obviously hates lunch. today is the birthday of bryan cranston comedian wanda sykes and the late great singer-songwriter townes van zandt. on this date, u.s.a. for africa's "we are the world" was released to the world bringing people of all nations all races and creeds together say in unison, why the hell is dan aykroyd on this record? this is "viewpoint." >> john: good evening, i'm john fuglesang. this is "viewpoint." president obama hasn't given up hopes yet for a grand bargain with republicans that would both raise taxes and slash the deficit. even if that means cutting social insurance programs which it would. but with a sequester now law despite mr. obama campaigning against it, he's now trying a new kind of outreach to the g.o.p. call it dining diplomacy. this afternoon, the president broke bread wi
leahy said: cenk: now, understand that what he's saying is that the administration has secret law. in a democracy that should be abhorrent, unacceptable. lay he is saying you can't have secret law used to execute u.s. citizens and we can't even check in on that law. the question rand paul focused on was can you kill u.s. citizens on u.s. so i am without a trial and guess what? attorney general eric holder came in and said you know what, it seemed we were saying you could, but all of a sudden, not so much. he says: cenk: that was not an additional question, that was the core question. he put in a couple of qualifiers there to have wiggle room as an attorney, of course be so they probably can kill u.s. citizens on u.s. soil under different circumstances. rand paul when asking about it seem somewhat satisfied with the answer. >> are you satisfied? >> i'm quite happy with the answer. i'm disappointed it took a month and a half and root canal to get it. that's what i've been asking all along. cenk: let's bring in a couple of experts, andrew kirell and colonel morris davis was chief pro
and then the potential for law enforcement, as well as commercial enterprises to use this technology, as well, so there is a multi-facetted problem that i think citizens ought to be concerned about. in fact, you may ever seen today where the attorney general sent a memo to rand paul who had asked the question about whether the president could authorize a drone strike in the u.s. michael: let's take a leukoowe colonel davis, i want to interrupt you so we can take a look at that letter and the viewers can see it. this is an answer to that letter which you provided us: michael: that does actually at least create a third conversation about drones, a third way of discussing them, doesn't it? >> right. it should be concerning, i would hope, to the american public that this possibility that the president could decide to launch a drone strike here in the u.s. on u.s. citizens. if you read the letter, it starts out saying we've never done this before, we've got no intention of doing this, we've got great law enforcement and great federal coats but hey you know, it's possible there could be some extraordin
they would know that -- >> pretty sure isn't good enough a court of law. >> caller: well, i'm pretty sure they wouldn't do this without knowing the full consequences -- >> stephanie: well, we were talking about [ inaudible ]. you are right, it's a tough, but this guy -- >> caller: but he defected. he renounced his citizenship. these are not rights that are guarantees to you, regardless no matter what. eventually you come to a point where you give up these rights. >> but sometimes you get the wrong guy, and do we want to live in a country like that? >> caller: it could happen, but i'm just saying you know, i just believe in the greater -- you know, in the end -- i -- i just don't think that this hypothetical situation would really come true first of all, and i think people are just really overreacting. >> stephanie: i'm with you on that. jim you were even saying maybe we should have brought osama bin laden to trial -- you know what i'm fine. >> caller: even the guy that we executed and accidentally killed his 16-year-old son, it was like this guy renounced his citizensh
. today you issued a statement about former dea chiefs who are calling on president to nullify state laws. you said it's arrogant that these former dea chiefs encourage the president to full my state marijuana laws. the fact that these former dea chiefs are so focused on marijuana possession is why we have lost the war on drugs. congressman, if we lost the war on drugs what should federal policy be going forward? >> where states have legalized we ought to see how it works. how does possession, legalization work and what happens. then the other states can learn from it. you shouldn't nullify the people's voice. the people are the ultimate powers. when you have a referendum, i think it's wrong for these former dea heads to not realize that they were fighting a losing war. it's against crack heroin and cocaine, not marijuana. we spent too much time and money on marijuana, ruined too many lives who can't get jobs, couldn't get scholarships, federal housing and have a big red "m" on their chest for smokerring marijuana. that's not what america is about. those people were out of touch when they
the house and the senate and it will be signed into law. there are very few people who are on the defense of background check side in this debate. the american people are solidly behind it. and once the folks who are dragging their feet and those who claim now to be opposed to it start hearing from folks back home, i think it is going to be a whole different situation. as you pointed out in the clip leading into this, you can't be against criminals getting guns and you can't be against the dangerously mentally ill getting guns and be against background checks. that's the first line of defense. one thing we can do to check folks, to screen folks to make sure that guns don't fall into the hands of the wrong people and create problems in our communities. >> john: i examine tell you how nice it is to hear a democrat say that. it is one of the things we haven't heard from any of our republican friends. what are the republicans and nra members doing to keep guns from falling into the hands of possible criminals. republicans are citing concerns over the formation of a national gun registry as th
crystals. ice breakers. >> do you not get a chance to explain yourself in a court of law before you get a hell fire missile dropped on your head? i think we really -- it just amazing me that people are so willing and eager to throw out the bill of rights and just say oh, that's fine, you know, terrorists are a big threat to us, and, you know, i'm so fearful that they will attack me that i'm willing to give up my rights? i think we give up too easily. >> michael: that's kentucky republican senator rand paul railing against the use of drones during his filibuster of john brennan's nomination to head the cia. he says the drone program is unconstitutional and raises questions about whether it would allow the government to target u.s. citizens on u.s. soil. joining us now to talk about that alan dershowitz joining us tonight. welcome into "the war room." >> thank you. >> michael: attorney general eric holder said that a drone strike against an american could be constitutional. do you agree with him? >> could be constitutional. that's the danger of answering hypothetical q

an analogy to the use of torture. there are american laws and international laws against the use of torture. now, george bush said that he could override that, right, as president. and he could use torture because he believes we got good information. he violated international law and was never held responsible for it. president obama disagrees with president bush on torture but president obama does believe his executive authority gives him an unlimited ability to use drones as killing machines overseas and now we know in the united states of america. and i think that pushes the authorization too far as well. >> absolutely. >> bill: those are all of the questions that have not been answered. look, there are always going to be wars. there are always going to be drones, now we know. and i'm not saying ban drones, shoot, put them all down and never use them again. but there has to be some guiding policy on when the use of a drone is acceptable and when its's not for what purpose against whom and that policy i believe also should be made by congress, not the president of the united states. we do

-gun measures a felony in pennsylvania. mr. metcalf said he wants to make gun laws to make it unapproachable from the government tyranny. the wtf-ness of metcalf gets more wtfy. he said we'll never allow the left to benefit from the wicked acts of murders to enhance their gun grabbing agenda. but he seems perfectly allowing mass murderers to amass their gun agendas and when they have a gun it often results in mass murders. wtf, pennsylvania. our nation was founded in you're fine state. you're a great state. you produced rocky and fired rick santorum. philadelphia was where our constitution was form. now mr. metcalf wants to pass an unconstitutional law. >> john: welcome back to "viewpoint." we asked our viewers to comment via twitter or facebook on the sequester, and john scott g posted this on my facebook page. the democrats are to blame for thinking that sanity and common sense would prevail in congress. i agree john scott that was pretty insane thing for democrats to think. that's like expecting the joker to be let out of arkham asylum for good behavior, and yes in answer to your question

be necessary and appropriate under the constitution and applicable laws of the united states for the president to authorize the military to use lethal force within this territory of the united states. for example the president could conceivably have no choice but to authorize the military to use such force as necessary to protect the homeland in the circumstances of a catastrophic attack like the one suffered on december 7 1941, and september 11 2011. nice touch bringing fear mongering in it. on september 11th tea 11th we arrested a whole bunch of muslims who were innocent. we would have executed them and then, whoops, it turns out they were innocent. this is grotesque. let's bring you michael shure and luke from the "huffington post." luke, let me start with you. see if you can answer the question for me that i've been asking all day on twitter and here as you saw in the first segment. where are the so-called progressive democrats who would have been on fire if this was the bush administration? >> well, i mean, i think civil liberties aren't really a left-right issue. i mean, many democrats w

into this. technically, obama did move first on spending. obama signed into law a set of bills that cut $1.8 trillion from discretionary spending including no tax increases at all. one of the bills the budget control act gave us the sequester so you could argue they included closer to $3 trillion in spending cuts without a single tax increase. it didn't seem to move trust. so far the republicans haven't proposed any further tax increases but obama has proposed quite a few spending cuts including medicare. >> john: and raising the medicare age. >> stephanie: the bottom line is republicans won't agree to further tax increases so there's no deal to be had. he goes on to say the truth comes out. republicans won't make a deal that includes further taxes. they want to get the white house to implement their agenda in return for nothing. there's no deal even if obama agrees to demands there is no deal because republicans don't want to make a deal that includes taxes no matter what they get in return for it. the interesting question is whether the possibility of a government shutdown, a debt ceilin
